Waiting on Wednesday


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

Even if I already own more than 3000 books in my personal library and have only read a small portion of them, the seduction of a new book still compels me to check hot lists and visit bookstores on an impromptu basis. Can I buy them all? Um…no. But, I can certainly wish for them, wait for them, or put them on hold at my local library. Here are a couple of books I’m looking forward to next month.

Week of November 4:

The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan, published by HarperCollins.
